of it and what the next president can get done. good evening from democracy plaza. here in new york city, it is saturday, november 3, 2012. this is a prime time edition of "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. i call it my election preview special, so we'll get to my first reads with a twist. we're taking a look at how we got here. presidential elections that aren't close are actually odd. no republican has gotten more than 300 electoral votes since 1988. only four democrats in history have gotten more than 53% of the vote. polls say the president may have an advantage, but romney could have an enthusiasm edge. bottom line, this is 1976 meets 2000 meets 2004. in other words, it's a very close race. so how did we get here? the president began this campaign weighed down by a troubled economy and still faces a jobless rate higher than any incumbent seeking re-election since fdr. when the president was sworn in, the economy was bleeding 800,000 jobs a month. in his first six months, there was a lot of money spent, some of it by choice, most of it by need. the wall street bailout, the federal
in new york city. >>> welcome back to "the ed show." thanks for staying with us tonight. it is no secret former president bill clinton is one of president obama's most valuable surrogates on the trail. president clinton is campaigning full force, no doubt, traveling through swing states and hitting the stump. mr. clinton stopped in chesapeake, virginia today. and even though his voice was hoarse, his message very clear. he laughed off republican criticism. >> and i notice the only criticism from the other party that was publicly voiced came from michael brown, who was the head of fema when katrina struck, and he criticized the president for being too quick to respond to this tragedy. i say bring it on. more criticism like that. >> and he wasn't afraid to hammer the romney campaign over their continued use of the completely misleading jeep ad in the way that only bill clinton can do. >> when i was a kid and i got caught with my hand in a cookie jar, sort of shrugged my shoulders, and my face got red and i took my hand out of the cookie jar. this guy gets caught, he digs d
